Masterpiece MP-13 Soundwave Laserbeak, MP-14 Red Alert Prototypes 1st Looks; Amazon Japan Exclusive Energon Cubes w/ Soundwave

By Peter Van on Wednesday, June 13, 2012



As a precursor to Tokyo Toy Show, everything that Takara Tomy was hoping to keep a lid on has come out. First it was the colored looks at Transformers Masterpiece MP-12 Sideswipe and now gray prototype images of MP-13 Soundwave and Laserbeak and MP-14 Red Alert have been posted on Amazon Japan.

The retailer will offer exclusive Energon cubes with MP-13 Soundwave.

The images show off Soundwave and his cassette minion Laserbeak in both robots and their alternate cassette player and cassette modes; and Red Alert in robot and vehicle modes.

Amazon will exclusively offer two Energon cubes with MP-13 Soundwave.


This is similar to the pile drivers the retailer is offering on the MP-12 Lambor.


The figures are due in December 2012 with Soundwave reported to cost 15800 Yen (~$199 USD) and Red Alert for 5800 Yen (~$73 USD). Additional information may be revealed by Takara this weekend at the Tokyo Toy Show.

Looks like that extra arcade money I've been saving up is going somewhere else! Also it looks like Soundwave's buttons are pushable on the front.

More MasterPiece News
A few reports have started circulating that Toys R Us in Times Square has stocked MP Bluestreak's Hasbro release. This is notable both because this item was supposed to debut at SDCC at the shared Toys R Us/Entertainment Earth booth, and because thereafter it was said it would be available online only. Whether this is the product of a shipping error or other fluke remains to be seen, but this may be more widely available than expected, at the same $70 price point Prowl sold at. If it's of interest to you, then happy hunting!
Coming to us via TFSource's Facebook, we've got another round of stock photography for the G2-styled Masterpiece Bumblebee release from Dengeki Hobby. While it does highlight very well that gold paint is no substitute for actual chrome plating in recreating the G2 toy's finish, it still gets the idea across decently. Click through and check out the images!
Planet Iacon has posted a few quick shots of the G2-based version of Masterpiece Bumblebee. While not chrome like its original counterpart, the metallic paint does kind of get the idea across. In these shots we get a good look at the figure wearing the used-once jetpack from the cartoon, and the toy-style faceplate, formerly a retailer exclusive accessory part. Keep reading to have a look!
ToysRUs has issued a press release touting its Comic-Con International 2015 exclusives, and there's one Transformers item on the list: Masterpiece Bluestreak! As with many of TRU's Comic-Con items, Bluestreak is only an "exclusive" in that this will be the first time he is up for sale; the figure should be available in ToysRUs stores later in the year. Keep reading to see his description and a link to TRU's Comic-Con Exclusives page!
YouTuber masainjapan2008 has posted an 11-minute video showing TakaraTomy's presentation at Tokyo Toy Show 2015! For a good look at MP Ironhide & Optimus Primal, Unite Warriors Devastator and all the new Transformers Adventure items, keep reading to watch!
